Dried rivers and lakes
Flowers burnt by the sun
While I was waiting
Where has my beauty gone?

Shining moons and stars
Over the ruins of life
Will you only leave regrets and scars?

Golden crowns and fame
Sights never seen before
Did you even find
What you were searching for?

From the empty lands
Through the wild seven seas
Have you wondered if she understands?

From the empty lands
Will you return to me?
I wish you could hold your daughter's hands

What you leave behind

(Him)
All worship bright jewels and crowns
Kowtow to some role
All they see, pretending they care
Is my bearing, not my soul

Would I die or fade, say, how many would cry?
Won't the crown fall on the next?
Fools in awe for an eerie form
Is that all love reflects?

(Her)
They say I'm their pride and their glory
That I'm one without compare
A sparkling diamond chrysanthemum
But don't I dare forswear

A single mistake, single fault
A try for honesty
What daughter, heir, leader or pride
They love my talent, not me

(Both)
Under the stars, I called for warmth
My tears had long run dry
All I could find was the cold answer
Of an empty sky

(Him)
Flames and ashes fly, but a blue gem shines
Flowing water bound by name
No bearing, gold or crown remains
So why is her look the same?

The dark and unknown are awaiting ahead
The neck I may have to bend
Is duty the reason she stays?
Or did I find a friend?

(Her)
Every rule or shackle that bound me
Suddenly broke in a blast
All sense of honor should have died
I should be free at last

Now all my soul wants is to obey
What I once yearned to flee
Encage myself, murder to protect
If for him, I might agree

(Both)
Under the stars, I asked for hope
A glimpse I caught in your eyes
Perhaps I'll find the strength to survive
Another sunrise

(Him)
Seeking my revenge, guided by my wrath
In roaring flames of pain
The crying souls, the dying calls
Shall not befall in vain

I was blind and lost, but I felt your embrace
You turned wrath into purpose
From the ruins of what we destroyed
I'll build a world for us

(Her)
All your foes I'll slay, for your aims I'll pray
I will allow you some rest
Your shadows I'll guard, I swear I'll make sure
Your roots you don't forget

An oath I've taken, a crest I bear
They're the reason I'm strong
However at the end of the day
Your arms are where I belong

(Both)
Under the stars, I searched my way
The blood I got to see through
Now the reason I fight so hard
Is to come back to you

The king and the keeper

About Me

Bio

Hi!
I am a university student, writing lyrics as a hobby.
I have been writing in French and English for years, and just decided to put my work out there.
I am not putting any french lyrics in here, but if you're interested, by all means, ask!

If you want me to create/modify lyrics to fit a certain melody, it would very much be my pleasure. Same if you want lyrics adaptation between French and English.
My main hope is simply having people stumble upon my texts and having a nice time reading them.

CV/History

I'm a science university student, I don't have professional experience in the music industry, I simply enjoy music and writing lyrics in my spare time.

I especially enjoy writing lyrics fitting for Fantasy stories, with war, magic and romance, usually for slow and melodious songs.
